  1. it was actually pretty funny but he is quite smart. he does not like shady mom's underhanded methods to try lock up jenny and so came up with a rational, logical response. hahahah... also cracked up when he logically said 30 year old take trips all the time. so what is the big deal if jenny goes away for a few days? LOL... but shady mom will really stoop to all sorts of levels. she actually suggested that man soo do something to make jenny handicapped so that she would be indoors all the time. yikes! or her other scheme is basically to make jenny declared mentally unfit.. @lu09 ~ it is good to see jenny at least making a dash for it. LOL. did we think this day will come? hahahah not sure if she will succeed but the story has to shift to korea soon no? can't keep her dangling in japan... but it looks like jenny will somehow end up with songah's house? songah's mom said that if birds sing, then a guest will come. so is the guest jenny? @msmy ~ ooh, jenny contacting kyung in makes lot of sense...
  2. 676 feeling so lazy to work.
  3. it was driving me nuts which is why I use a different site where the subs are better timed. check the old link I sent you by PM. wonder if others have the same problem....
  4. kekeke... it is because with crime and horror, the villains are so set that there is no debating whether or not the character's action are acceptable. it would be pretty much accepted by everyone that the villain needs to be jailed or worse. so it is more about sitting back, chilling and seeing how the villains will get caught. it is actually less stressful in a way. hahahahah... but yea, romance dramas hit the heart and so often people are responding out of their emotions. thats why there is heat. 658
  5. kekeke.. @triplem ~ yea, affairs dramas seem to really trigger people. basically there's folks like @Ameera Ali who are all about the abs. LOL. so just enjoying the drama, the moments, the lighting. there are folks who see this as kind of social commentary and so writing psych essays. and then there are folks who see parallel from their own lives because they have seen or felt the impact of infidelity and it just becomes personal. so it is hard to tell who is in which group and why they are watching. so often people end up stepping on emotional landmines without meaning to. so yea, even when I was a neutral viewer (basically just watching for time pass and not every invested in the drama), there were few threads that sometimes felt so stressful. definitely tough job for mods! 658
  6. am actually surprised that I don't find jenny annoying. LOL. normally, feel like pulling my hair at some of these female leads who act silly but since it looks like jenny is completely in lala land, it is actually more amusing. shady mom doesn't even have to work that hard to pull the wool over this girl's eyes. in a way, it makes sense because she doesn't manage a single aspect of the business. the only thing she does is design and sew clothes on her own in this workshop. so she can afford to be dumb as long as she is creative? hahahahah.... love the somber quieter beat of this romance. it isn't fancy but still feels romantic no? yea, it is surprising given her personality on how she ended up with yong man. was it a one night romance? or maybe she just wanted someone who is silly and makes her laugh? it doesn't look like yong man was even serious about her but they had to get married because she got pregnant. so perhaps, it was just meant to be a fling? oooh, now that would be an interesting twist. and yea, given how we always get some surprising twist, one never knows. it looks like man soo really is interesting for many of us here in the thread as he seems so unpredictable.. am hoping that rather than a love story, it will be more like a punishment exercise where he gets taught a lesson. kyung in is pretty smart for now and seems like the type of gal to actually beat him up. it would be a pity if she also ended up like jenny. am not sure if we can handle more lala land characters. welcome to the thread @rikimaiu; did you just start watching? how do you find the drama so far?
  7. affair dramas often have the most heated discussions! 642
  8. 640 feeling so laaaaaazzzzzzzzy from the heat wave.
  9. 626 talking about cheating dramas, TW drama before we get married is quite interesting. it seems to explore the theme that cheating for some happens because they are very unhappy or dissatisfied with their relationship and so turn to cheating as a kind of escape? so yea, they are attracted to each other but really it seems to be the unhappiness and frustration that seems to be what they are responding to...

    Soompi love feast

    @gm4queen ~ thanks for the sweetness. is that miniature modeling?
  11. it was sad when they got axed but I thought he was really sweet the way he supported her as friend. plus, he sneaked in a few kisses which was actually cute. 582
  12. 580 kekeke... also found the concept weird. whenever I read the description, I was just plain confused. LOL. but somehow ended up watching the global season and loved taec and guigui. it was hysterical and just fluff. so it is not scripted as in they get dialogues but scripted as in they get the situation card. however, the dynamic is what makes it funny because one never knows what can happen. some of the WGM couples were real oddballs. one of my faves were cao lu and jo se ho. he was adorably awkward and she wasn't very happy when she met him. but once they get to know each other, they sort of became fond of each other. she actually admitted that she had a crush on him after because he treated her so well on the show. so some of these couples do become friends and have a good memory. others -- fake it till they leave! LOL.
  13. to give further context, @Lawyerh -- the show had been rocked by another scandal prior to this where this actress talked badly about her WGM partner. the show itself was sort of on the cusp of cancellation. now min young was actually a host before she got cast as part of the couple with nam goong min. so she was really dedicated to making this work on the show. so min young really pushed for that and sort of made the show popular again. so for him to do that was a blow to the show as well as her hard work. fans were not so crazy about him not feeling romantic but more annoyed with him destroying the sweet nature of the show. does that make sense? @sushilicious ~ it is difficult to explain but part of the appeal of WGM is that you get to see a relationship form from awkward to blossom stage and you see different couple dynamics. yes, they are pretending to be married and some of the situations are kind of dumb but their interactions for the most part are authentic. 578
  14. 578 yea @Lawyerh ~ this was the story. when it first came out, it sounded pretty bad that he had to backtrack and pedal an apology to the show and her.
  15. because of what happened after he exited the show. he had good chemistry with his partner on the show and so folks were curious. instead of being polite, he said something to the effect of he would never date someone like her. it was bit of a backhanded insult and not nice. she was the one who really worked to make their segment entertaining and thus raise his popularity and profile. he was in the slumps with no roles when he did we got married. her hard work was even appreciated by his own family -- his brother actually wrote a letter in to her radio show appreciating how well she treated his brother as nam goong min was really nervous about variety as he is not very spontaneous. so to say that was a real blow to the show as well as her. he started dating someone shortly after and so maybe wanted to be free but it was very rude the way he worded it. the usual WGM response was "we are busy but wish each other well." not sure why he didn't just say that. at the time, his rudeness caused a bit of stir among fans and he actually apologized and she said politely that he didn't mean it that way and he apologized to her in private as well. still, it left a bad taste in long-time viewers of the show like me because he started getting work again after being on the show. 576
  16. @sushilicious ~ watching we got married turned me off nam goongmin for good. 576
  17. the last daily I watched, the villain character had a very interesting arc after she turned from her greed. it was quite unexpected and actually done very well. so one never knows with daily dramas. so it will be interesting to watch man soo and see what happens.

    OTP Bingo 2019

    thank you for joining us and having some laughs -- @triplem @mouse007 @vangsweetie637 @2handsintertwined @sohib @itsMYday @Yongzura @Lawyerh @ktcjdrama @Ameera Ali Hope everyone had fun even if they didn't hold a winning bingo ticket. here's the calling ticket that was used: were you able to figure out the tropes? till the next event, see you then. re: @sushilicious
  19. the question is whether jenny will buy it. eun seok was smart in that he actually bought evidence in the form of phone and video recordings. however, it would be easy for shady mom to say that it was fabricated and jenny is gullible. am curious to see how jenny will come to korea at this stage. maybe she will run away because shady mom tries to make it seem like jenny is not mentally stable? by the way, what are your impressions of the other characters in the drama? how are you finding the drama so far? also tagging @joccu @dulceres @lu09 and anyone else who is watching this drama... curious to hear your impressions.
  20. man soo is really interesting second lead. while he seemed genuinely sad, in the previous episodes, the guy had a kind of hard glint in his eye when he found out about the pickpocket and firecracker incident. so maybe he does like her a bit romantically but it is not enough to budge him from his long term objective. he is not jumping in to save jenny unlike eun seok who is all fired up. and he only punched eun seok when eun seok called him a stalker -- so perhaps this whole pursuing jenny when she clearly isn't interested doesn't sit well with him either. since his objective seems more important than jenny, maybe he won't be hooked till the end? don't know but am already hoping he will have a happy ending -- man soo already seems a bit tragic. hahahaha.... while eun seok is still a bit bland, isn't it great to have a lead who is smart -- he put it right. jenny is trapped but doesn't even know it. jenny on the other hand is one lala land character. a female lead who is truly kind of dumb. LOL.
  21. try out shady mom-in-law and see if you like it. you may be surprised. quite easy watch and only half hour each ep. 520
  22. yea. it makes it kind of fun that the story seems to be layered so we are getting details little by little. already 19 episodes flew by. so am wondering how man soo will end up back in korea as well. jenny will probably run off to korea but will man soo come to manage his hotel there? and wild idea -- won't it be fun if man soo ends up with kyung in? much better combo than yongman and kyung in..... at least it would far less awkward dinner. hahahahah....
  23. am really enjoying it! hahahha.... so there's enough twists and turns to surprise you and none of the characters are acting in a typical fashion. there is both the familiar feel as well feeling really fresh. can't think of a drama where the female lead basically asks the second lead, her sort of fiance, to cover for her so that she can go on a date with the first lead. LOL. put that way, it sounds quite scandalous no? wish more would have the patience to check out a daily drama because it feels like this is going to be good ride and we are all going to enjoy it despite the inevitable lapses in logic and loose ends that will happen along the way. what about others here? what are your impressions of the drama? good, bad, ugly?
  24. 992 am really enjoying the mystery aspect of shady mom in law. if anyone has the patience to regularly put aside half hour to watch a kdrama daily, check out this one. it is actually good so far.
  25. @celebrianna ~ we will have to watch further to see how it plays out but at least for now, man soo does not come across as pathetic but rather very shrewd. so I actually got where he was coming from. have watched these crime documentaries where someone put a hit on a person and the police withheld the information till they could catch the suspect. so the police just watch and keep surveillance on the potential victim. they felt that informing the victim might result in more harm as they would confront the suspect or alert the suspect in some way. so thats the vibe I got from man soo -- and like you said, jenny so far has not shown any back bone. she has lived with shady mom all these years but has never questioned some of the irregularities. so whether she is capable of defending herself is a real question. eun seok is point blank telling her that she should consider moving to korea and he will try and find a way to protect her. but jenny doesn't seem to really get how much danger she actually is in. what I found really interesting about the vibe between man soo and jenny is that she uses him as a cover and she knows he will protect her. so take how she asked him to give her some space so that she could go out with eun seok. if he was a typical second lead, we wouldn't see this scene. and he lies for her that they went out for a walk. and she expected him to. it was not like she was surprised. and he also lied that he got hit by some random punk rather than eun seok. we don't see jenny shaking in her boots thinking man soo is going to reveal the truth. instead she is more mad about the confrontation between the two. so jenny herself knows that man soo is on her side. he ensures that she can get as much as possible from shady mom and he does it in a subtle manner like when he tells shady mom that eun seok would have left on plane already and so it is okay to let jenny walk home. so just from their interaction this episode, it felt like this is something man soo has routinely done. it is also quite clear that if man soo wasn't in the picture, shady mom would be hunting for some other rich bloke to get jenny married to and jenny may meekly go along as she has no choice. in that sense, man soo has ensured that jenny is the one in control of her romantic life. we will have to wait and see whose approach is better -- eun seok or man soo. but till jenny actually does something about her life, it really doesn't matter whether these men have her interest at heart. as for man soo's true objective, am looking forward to finding out what exactly it is. he is turning out to be a very different and interesting second lead.
